FYI* Savages is what ‘Canadian’ white settlers use to call Aboriginals.”

15. Everyone proceeded to laugh at me while they left and went with him.

“In third grade I wasn’t very popular. I was the skinny white kid that wore what his mother made him wear and had no confidence. The bullies were real.

I had two girls in my class suddenly come up to me one day, link arms with me on each side and tell me how ‘cute’ I was and how they both wanted to be my girlfriend. This went on for days. I was so happy and surprised that any girl liked me, let alone two. We would go to recess together, eat lunch, talk about our day, it was great. I vividly remember both of them mentioning wanting to ‘have sex with’ me once. All of this came crashing down though when the girl’s original boyfriend announced to them their work was done and everyone proceeded to laugh at me while they left and went with him. He had set me up with them just for this moment of humiliation. The girls took turns saying things like ‘you think any of us would like you?’

Looking back, it was very traumatizing and I’m surprised this occurred at such a young age. It wasn’t until I was a junior in high school that I actually gained some confidence and self-worth.

Fuck ’em.”

I didn’t like having it open because my hair always flies out the window. He looked at me, said ‘whatever, you’re ugly anyway’ and reached over and opened my window.”

18. She pulled me aside and said, ‘Hey so I know you have a crush on me and I just don’t feel the same way so can you stop liking me please?’

“Not sure if this counts as rejection because I didn’t even ask her out.

In middle school, I had a crush on this one girl for a while. One day she pulled me aside and said, ‘Hey so I know you have a crush on me and I just don’t feel the same way so can you stop liking me please?’

I didn’t even ask her out and I got rejected by her.”

20. I flew across the Atlantic to see her and she said, ‘I think we should see other people.’

“Was about 20 living in London in a long-distance relationship with a girl from upstate NY.

We’d been together a year or so when I flew over to see her after being apart for about a month.

Got to the airport, waited…waited…rang her home (pre-mobile phones) spoke to her Dad first (!) and then her.

When I asked when she was coming to get me from the airport after an 8-hour flight she said ‘I think we should see other people’ and hung up.

Ouch.”

Not gonna lie…still hurts a little.”

27. I was the butt of a joke played on a jock.

“Freshman year of high school, 1994. I’m a year younger than most, dorky, and terrible about social cues and self-awareness.

I get a note passed to me in class. ‘You’re cute. Call me after school.’ Signed Nathan, cute sophomore boy on the other side of the room. Phone number attached.

I make the call when I get home. ‘Uh yeah…my friends did that as a joke. Don’t call me.’

So awkward freshman me was the butt of a joke played on a jock. Didn’t feel great.”
